Lauren & Griffin's Lake Forest Bridal Shower

Lauren and Griffin live in Austin and are getting married on New Years Eve here in Chicago. Lauren's mom, Julie, decided to throw them an intimate couples shower at the family's home in Lake Forest. Inspired by the lovely cafes in the south of France, Julie filled the trees with lights and served dinner at a single long harvest table. It was a perfect summers evening!

Dinah & Ram's Radisson Blu Aqua Wedding

We have a special place in our hearts for Indian weddings. All the color, glitz and glam. The yummy food and bumping jams. Dinah and Ram, along with their families, pulled out all the stops and threw a three day bash in downtown Chicago. The weekend started out with a Mehndi and Garba at the Hyatt Regency. For the wedding day, the couple booked the Radisson Blu Aqua, one of the hottest new hotels in Chicago. Carli, from HM Designs, transformed the ballroom, and DJ Banti spun the jams. South Asian planner extraordinaire Nisar, and his amazing team from Sabrina Hans Events brought all the elements together and made sure the night ran smoothly. Thanks guys for letting us be part of you amazing day!

Emily & Bill's Ivy Room Party

This past Saturday we got to work with a great couple! Emily & Bill pulled out all the stops while we were doing pictures. They knew they wanted plenty of time to get around because of the Chicago Air and Water Show. Even with the traffic we were able to get a bunch of photo locations in before getting them to their ceremony at Old St. Pats and their beautiful reception at The Ivy Room. It's always a pleasure working with Christy & Donna over at the Ivy Room. Adorned with sharp yellow florals by A Stem Above it looked GREAT! Food by Blue Plate and tunes by Toast and Jam - there's no doubt a good time was had by all! 

Check out some of our favorite pictures below!
